im thinking about buying an A-5 from a local pawnshop...i think these guns look amazing!! there is a local pawnshop where i live that has dozens of them but id like to do some more investigating..but im just wondering would it be a waste to get one of these if its in good condition because i do plan to hunt with this gun!! and it will not be seeing any saltwater or anything like that.. I clean my guns vigorously so i would take care of it just wanna know would this gun be a better collector gun or should it be used!! please help
If you can maintain it and not destroy it in the field, then definitely use it. You won't regret it. I have dropped mine in icy waters in the Ohio river and had it covered in salt water from hitting waves that came over the gunnels. That gun rusted badly, but I got it re blued and probably will never touch it for waterfowl. However, it was one of the best guns I ever shot.
Only trust those who like big butts, for they cannot lie.
